The thought came to me about an hour after a profound conversation with one of my mentors – one of those spontaneous things that just pops up in your consciousness…
It doesn’t matter if the pickle is kosher, if you put it on a ham sandwich.
Actually, thinking about it now it wasn’t all that spontaneous. It came as I was getting my daughter a foot long ham and provolone at Subway…with lettuce and cucumbers.
There’s nothing wrong with ham sandwiches. They’re terrific, especially if you’re on the go, chomping one down between your after school job and jazz band practice – as she was that day.
And kosher pickles…well they’re just magnificent. Especially the garlic dill kind. For some people they’re an obsession.
Live and let live. It’s all good.
It’s when you think somehow that the ham sandwich will take on kosher properties because of the pickle you plopped on top of it. That’s when you’re begging to be disappointed.
Sorry, but there’s just nowhere in the Talmud that says that sandwich is gonna turn kosher. It’s a pork product. The window dressing doesn’t matter.
You can put all the bells and whistles you want on your business. You can apply fancy language to your personal development. You can use words like Law of Attraction and Manifest a hundred times a day.
If at your core you still think and feel with scarcity…
If you’re still walking around in
of what you don’t have, rather than being an open vessel of all the good that’s looking for you…
If you don’t have a profound sense of
for the blessings you’ve been given…
(and on Veterans Day, with 21st century technology and cheap and abundant food, you have plenty of blessings)
If you don’t genuinely see yourself as a dance partner with a loving, giving Universe…
then all the techniques, twists and manipulations you’re playing with are really just putting a kosher pickle on a ham sandwich.
Wanna make a pile of money? Wanna “manifest” the love of your life? Want rock hard abs?
Wanna live with a sense of purpose and excitement? Want people to genuinely look up to you?
Commit to it.
Commit to change at the core. Throw out what you know.
Because you are a child of God. You are magnificent, no matter what your self-talk has allowed your life circumstances to create.
You are a King, or a Queen (to be written in the near future).
You have the right ingredients for the perfect sandwich….for you.
If you’re cool with the ham sandwich, so am I. We all have our roles to play.
If you want something more, re-invent yourself from the inside out. You already have the ingredients to change your sandwich. It’s just a matter of unlocking your own personal refrigerator and creating it.
Your Chef De Cuisine,
So proud of my new co-creating pal at THE END GAME. She’s making more money, attracting more people and having more fun. It’s all about allowing the genius inside to overwhelm the fear and doubt that’s been around too long. Four more people will play THE END GAME with me.
